    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I saw the C-5M at the NY Airshow this weekend. However, I think the C-17 is one of the best looking cargo planes.
  2. The show seems to have very Western (ie. American Old West) theme so a German sounding title wouldn't be appropriate. I wonder if one of the episodes is going to be titled "Dogfight at the O.K. Corral".
  3. Interesting new anime coming in January. Title: 荒野のコトブキ飛行隊 (Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai) Kotobuki Squadron of the Wild (West?) Directed by Mizushima Tsutomu (Girls und Panzer) Tagline: 空戦が日常。(trans: aerial combat everyday)

    Calibre Wings 1/72 diecast VF-1

    Painted prototype seen on their Facebook page https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/40860494_1006822956186425_6641298961913085952_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=7d4c7e006fb63981d36dd1f485c39379&oe=5C36F564 https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/40889462_1006822986186422_4373791220170752000_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=99514ee6abe2af9939701bd56ea69bd7&oe=5BEF589E

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    This is what we really want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhgiiVddR5c
  7. The Calibre Wings Wolfpack release is not recommended. It was one of the first releases and had QC defects - mainly some bad file marks around the glove vanes. The Century Wings Tomcat is pretty good. However, when you compare it to the Calibre Wings Tomcat you might feel that it is not up to par. Also, no need to order it from Amiami. US retailers have it available for pre-order as well. https://www.flyingmule.com/products/CW-001626 http://www.aikensairplanes.com/f-14b-tomcat-usn-vf-103-jolly-rogers-aa101-uss-dwight-d-eisenhower-1998/ If you're OK with the Century Wings Tomcat and absolutely want a Wolfpacks Tomcat, then you could also opt for the Hobby Master version, whose mold is exactly the same as the Century Wings mold. https://www.flyingmule.com/products/HM-HA5220
  8. Definitely get the Ghostriders Tomcat. You won't regret it. It comes with the double Sidewinder load which makes it a bit unique. Here's mine:
  9. Just got this yesterday. Pylons were a bit of a pain to attach but nothing unusual for diecast aircraft models.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Love the promo video. Replicates the original SDFM episode preview feel and even has Millia's VA doing the narration.

    Calibre Wings 1/72 diecast VF-1

    I recently sold off all of my 1/60 VF-1s. I'm ready to start collecting these.
  12. I used to read it myself back in middle school. My friends and I would often play soccer and pretend to be like the characters in Captain Tsubasa.
  13. I would pre-order the entire team in a heartbeat if Bandai were to release them in the SH Figuarts line. Not so sure on this Evolution release of the God Phoenix. It looks a bit off. The seamline along the side also looks pretty bad. I have the Fewture/Art Storm releases of all of the vehicles and they all have wonderful sculpts.... only to be let down by sloppy ass paint work. orz

    Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    VF-11MAXL would be my choice.

    Many land-based fighter jets have tailhooks for emergency use. They're not as robust as those on naval fighters though.
